Stéphane Patrick Porato (born 19 September 1973) is a French former professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Career[edit]

In his country Porato represented Sporting Toulon, AS Monaco FC, Olympique de Marseille (where he played in the 1999 UEFA Cup Final), US Créteil-Lusitanos and AC Ajaccio, mainly as a backup or starting in the second division. On 13 November 1999 he earned his sole cap for France, appearing in a 3–0 friendly win with Croatia.[2]

In late October 2006, as he had already moved to Spain with second level's Deportivo Alavés, following Ajaccio's relegation from Ligue 1, Porato had a trial at Chelsea in view of signing as third-choice after the long-term skull injury to Petr Čech.[3] Eventually, nothing came of it.

Porato joined Xerez CD, in the same country and tier, for the 2007–08 season. A starter in his first year, he lost the job in the following as the Andalusians achieved a first-ever La Liga promotion, being released in July 2009.[4]
